During the month of February Canadian Cake Decorators Guild chapters across Canada were contemplating the great debate that many decorators face; Scratch vs. Mix.
This months two sponsors Virgin Ice & Icing Inspirations sent chapters either vanilla, chocolate or red velvet cake mixes to bake and taste test. Many of the chapters also invited memebers to bring some of their own favorite mix or scratch cakes. It was a fun tasty activity seeing if members could tell which cakes were which.
In addition to all the deliciousness there were a few chapters that were still having fun with their Jessica Harris templates from the January meeting. At the Montreal South Shore chapter they were discussing finishing techniques for cake boards. In Kitchener there was some fun with onlays.
February was a delicious month for the CCDG.
